The boy walked along side the man who held him against him with an arm around his shoulder. They entered the long house, followed by several of the villagers and Noah, and then the rest of the newcomers.
The inside of the long house was a different environment entirely. The overgrowth on the outside was almost a jungle inside. Plants and trees grew up towards the pinnacle of the ceiling, where it almost seemed bright sunshine was shining through. (Despite it being twilight, outside.)
The villagers moved into the middle of the long house, tending to favor the side with the door on it, because at the far end, a giant flower bud twisted about, and then bloomed, revealing a radiantly beautiful woman, covered in dress-like garment made of maple leaves and flowers. She stood up, and the plants around her reached for her feet. Within a 5 foot radius around her, the plants became excited and seemed to sway and dance and lean towards her. She radiated divinity like a flame radiates heat.
She looked through the villagers at the newcomers, beyond. A tension built, but was relieved again as she grew closer to the villagers. It was like night and day. As she grew closer, negative emotions were rather suddenly halted. It was palpable, sudden, and overwhelming. It was easy to know that it was because of her presence. The villagers stepped aside as she approached, and so did the boy. As she grew nearer to him, he clutched the symbol around his neck very tightly, his knuckles going white.
She stopped and turned to him. The boy looked up at her, his eyes sore and red. He glanced over at Lady, then back up at the avatar in front of him. The woman knelt down and looked into his eyes. When she spoke, it was like a gushing ocean of prismatic sound poured fourth. Thousands of words, and meanings. The sound was muchly like singing, but as one listened to it, it became less like noise, and one heard meaning, instead.
"----There is no need to cry. Her spirit is in a wonderful place, now, I promise."
The boy clenched his fist tighter around the symbol and stared back into the avatar's eyes, "cor moa.. cor moa obv...!" He glanced at Lady again, his eyes filled with a rage that was impossible to hide.. then the avatar sighed.. the boy continued to speak, his voice came through gritted teeth. "Din guy?! Mern kao la mai fet fin??"
"Your mother is NOT dead..! She's not gone!" The boy shook. "Cor moa OBV!" he shouted again, interrupting her.
There was a silence. The avatar seemed thoughtful, and none of the villagers dared to interrupt their exchange.
"She made a grand and beautiful sacrifice. And so have you. Perhaps you are too young for me to be testing your faith as I have been." She sighed and the boy rubbed at his eyes. She spoke again to him, only to say, "I'm sorry."
The boy said nothing for many moments. He then just nodded his head to the avatar. "Abudo." His grip on the symbol about his neck relaxed, and fell. He continued to rub at his eyes with his sleeve.
The Avatar turned from the boy. "You all have questions. I have answers for your questions."
